WHERE ARE WE NOW?

11th September 2012 by Bill Davis
Around 732 B.C. the Assyrian army struck fear and terror into the hearts of the people of Israel. The Assyrian army spoke a language that has become very close to today’s Arabic; which is also the language of Osama bin Laden. On 9-11-2001, the terrorist communicated with each other using words and speech patterns that reflected those used by the Assyrian leaders as they executed their attack on Israel more than 2000 years earlier. Assyria was an ancient Biblical kingdom that was located in a part of Mesopotamia that is today’s Iraq.
Isaiah 9:10 King James Version (KJV); “The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.”
Israel vowed to rebuild bigger and stronger. They would no longer use bricks from dried mud and straw, rather they would go to the mountains and cut and quarry giant stones called Gazi stones. At the rebuilding of Ground Zero, officials vowed to rebuild an even stronger and taller building than the World Trade Center. The Nation became focused on the corner stone to be placed at what was to be known as the Freedom Tower. It was to be a twenty ton block of cut and quarried mountain stone called the Gazi Stone of Ground Zero.
In ancient Israel, the sycamore trees grew abundantly in the lands of Judea. The Israelites used them in construction even though the tree was of very little esteem. As the dust began to clear from the Twin Towers, it was found that a tree on a small plot of ground had been cut down by the falling debris. The tree would become a symbol of 9-11 and its very roots would be shrined. And yes, it was a sycamore tree.
Is history repeating itself? Are we like Israel, turning our backs on the God who gave us this Nation? Are we allowing other gods to dominate our thinking?
2 Chronicles 7:14 King James Version (KJV); “If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
